Default Old Hamilton Motorola Type 2

Does anyone know when the ops at the Hamilton Airport will be switching to the Hamilton P25 system? I have been running Unitrunker on the old Motorola Type 2 system for the past couple hours and noticed they are the last ones left on the old system.

Geez I didn't even realize the old system was still on the air. What about the system the Intel/Surveillance guys used.. is it still in use? Seems a tad overkill to keep 3 systems running haha

i noticed that out of all of the frequencies that was part of this system has been whittled down to 3. I haven't even tried the old Surveillance system. Maybe I will give it a go in the morning and see if it is still around. Ya and it would be overkill if that was still around too.

Wow I just checked and the old Hamilton Intel system is alive and churning out a CC. I guess it's time I run Unitrunker on it and see how often it is used if at all.

Just plunked the old CCs into a couple of instances of Unitrunker. Let's see what a day or two of watching brings...

Here's what has turned up in 10 or so hours of monitoring. Talk group names are a combination of the old and what I've been able to decypher when I heard voices. 2608 doesn't appear in the RR database, I suspect another Works group.

The secure system ( cc 866.5375) is still there too, no activity at all.

This is from current control channel 866.4125:

So... Looks like the airport guys are still on it, and that's about it.

Wonder why they haven't migrated over to the new P25 system yet.

Maybe the city ran out of money to add airport FD talkgroups.......maybe It was the least important on the agenda?

Seems to me airport comms would be more of a priority than encrypting the roads dept.. its a strange world.
